Would recommend to take the right track up the hill as the steps can get slippery while getting down.

I would recommend this trail to anyone wanting to get their heart rate up. I went up via Lyrebird track and the 1000 steps and came back down the fitness route - much more space. Only go though if you don’t mind crowds, it’s super busy.

The 1000 steps are lovely and not at all as hard as made out to be! We did the stairs section in 10mins. Going down a little tough on the knees.

For me it is an excellent goal builder, it can be hard at first but you could work in stages around and up the steps and tracks , beautiful surroundings and serene nature

My family and I have done this track several times. The paths have recently been improved making it much safer underfoot. The only negative is that it is very popular and can be hard to get a park at times and the path up is quite narrow for passing. We have also done this in the dark at night the kids love it. There are also several other tracks around the mountain if you want a longer walk.

This walk is a great work out. You will need good shoes, the top is very slippery when wet.

I have done a 13 km trail starting from One Tree Hill at the top of Kokoda memorial 1000 step. I walked along the chandler hill circuit then I went dow to Fern Tree Gully picnic area. From that point I strongly recommend to take the Musk walk before the 1000 steps attack. All the trail are easy large path in the forest. Down to Hansen and Chandlers tk you can have wanderfull open landscape on the valley. The 1000 steps are quite hard to do after 12 km. But u can do it slowly and enjoying the magnificent tropical vegetation in the creek. Take care if wet it coulb be slepery expecialy down hill.

Love this track... there are alternative routes down which have less people. If you go just past the drinking fountains at the top of the stairs about 20m or so and turn left, there's another bunch of tracks that will take you back to the carpark.

Great climb but can be tough at times. There are a few pockets throughout the climb where you can step out and catch your breath. Definitely will do it again

Not too difficult... great piece of exercise with a lot of history to boot!.. very shaded for most of the climb so definitely never too hot to do.

Way too many people for my taste. So many walks that you can work as hard as this one on without the (unfriendly) crowds. I prefer a track where people say, “hi”, as you cross paths over this which feels a bit them and us.

busy walk not a quiet stroll, I didnt do the steps but walked on the side track and it had alot of gravel, take poles if you have them to avoid slipping.
